  1. I remember FMF BMX frames too! Barely able to see over the counter, gazing longingly at the one hanging in the local bicycle shop...
  2. FMF canisters?!?! I thought we agreed on Graves Motorsports mufflers!! (Just kidding)
  3. Yep, Wade is building. I spoke with him yesterday to ask him to notify us when he is getting close to completing our order so we can contact everyone who has placed orders for headers. As an aside here, I also let him know how many 5 gen vs how many 6 gen orders we have. To us VFR owners, the only difference between 5 and 6 gen headers is that 6 gens have a 5/8” shorter collector exit pipe, but, to the builder, there is more to it than simply chopping off 5/8” from the finished assembly. Because the mandrel bending machine clamps so hard on the tubing to bend it accurately, the tubes
  4. Hi Madsen. That's an interesting concept...we haven't tried fitting these headers onto a VFR800X Crossrunner, mostly because we don't have Crossrunners here in the USA [To the best of my knowledge]. Does your 2018 Crossrunner have front or side radiators? The headers in this thread come in two versions: [1] a side radiator model that fits the 1998-2001 5th gen and 2002-2009 [2002-2013 in other countries] 6th gen [2] a front radiator model that fits the 2014-2015 [and other years in other countries] VFR800F 8th gen If you have a front radiator, yo
  5. Good deal. People are often critical of the butt dyno, but that's the dyno we have easiest access to; it's the one we use all the time!
  6. Yikes - glad to see that is designated as ‘initial run’. I don’t think I’ve ever seen as dramatic a VTECH dip as that.
  7. Copy that - PM received and replied. Cheers
  8. I believe Scotland is within range - we've sent them to England, Norway, Netherlands, France, Australia, Greece, New Zealand, and perhaps a couple other countries I can't recall without checking the records. Total is $830 USD plus approximately $120 USD for shipping.
  9. My apologies for multiple posting this message, but wanted to get this out to guys who may be getting notifications for this thread but are not watching the activity stream. Seems pertinent to this discussion. LAST CHANCE FOR HEADERS Just putting out the final announcement that the latest production run of headers has started. It consists of both types of headers: 5/6 gen for side radiators, and 8 gen for front radiator. If anyone has been thinking about a set of these pipes, sitting on the fence, waiting for a sign, etc, then this might be the time to order

If anyone has been thinking about a set of these pipes, sitting on the fence, waiting for a sign, etc, then this might be the time to order a set. The fabricator's minimum order is 15 units, and this last order took us almost a year to gather, so we don't know when we'll be able to assemble the necessary 15 orders again. Could be quite a while.

  12. Thought I'd toss VFRD member Samuelx's pipes into this mix. Of course, it's not fair to bring a dyno-tuned full header system to a slipon comparison thread...just like it's not fair to bring a gun to a knife fight:
  13. There is a definite theme to everyone’s curiosity, and the timing couldn’t be better. We have been negotiating with Wade the fabricator, attempting to buy our way past or navigate around his 15 unit minimum order. Last week we finally got a commitment from him to build 12 headers for 5/6 gen VFRs and 3 headers for 8 gen VFRs. These are a couple more units than we have deposits for, but the iron was finally hot, so we had to strike. As fast as we could get down to the post office, we used Priority Express to send him deposits for all 15 headers, so: WE ARE NOW IN BUILD P
